The Chair of the Department, faculty and staff from Microbiology Department are pleased to welcome you to the San Juan Bautista School of Medicine.
The Department of Microbiology is a Biomedical Science Department within the School of Medicine at San Juan Bautista School of Medicine. The Department administer the Immunology course to first year medical students, Medical Microbiology to second year medical students and Microbiology to nursing students.
Our students are involved not only in regular class activities, but also we incorporate innovative instructional and learning methodologies such as virtual modules intended to complement the course lectures using integrated exercises directed to apply the basic microbiological and/or immunological problems to solve medical problems.
The Microbiology Department have implemented with success a program to prevent academic failure and to implement specific interventions according to the students’ needs. The program includes: individual tutoring, small group discussion tutoring and virtual classes in selected topics.
The Department works multidisciplinary together with the other departments in the implementation of the organ-based curriculum of the medicine program.
Our faculty teaches and conducts research on infectious microbes and the immune system. Our mission is to advance knowledge in the areas of bacterial multidrug resistance, and immuno-nutrition, in order to build up the knowledge necessary to better understand microbial pathogenesis and the discovery of future antimicrobial treatments.
We strongly believe that our students have an incredible opportunity to make relevant professional and scientific advances and contributions while at SJBSM as well as after graduation, whether they work in hospital, academia, health administration or any other clinical or healthcare organization.
